Gil Cooper joined the Communication faculty at Pittsburg State University in 1992. Previously, Mr. Cooper was Director of Speech and Theatre at Moberly Area Community College, Missouri.
Mr. Cooper is the Communication Education Specialist, a speech communication generalist and a member of the theatre faculty. Presentational communication, small group communication and communication education are three of his areas of focus.
"It is rewarding to help students improve their communication because at the heart of it, how we present ourselves intellectually, emotionally, and physically is vital to our success." - Gil Cooper
Outside the department Mr. Cooper is also a communication consultant whose performance clients have included professional athletes, regional politicians, ministers, and pageant contestants. His small group communication clients have included medical schools, business corporations, hospitals, and churches.
In his free time he enjoys table top games and game design (he has worked for three different game companies), reading and hanging out with his family. Occasionally Gil also manages to squeeze in a Kansas City Chiefs game.
